Disney's Phineas and Ferb

Every morning I watch Disney's animated series Phineas and Ferb with my boys. It features two science hero brothers, their jealous older sister, and their pet platypus, who is actually a secret agent. The episodes are funny, intelligent, and feature genuinely enjoyable music. (It's kind of like the exact opposite of the nearly unwatchable Clone Wars cartoon.) I'd describe it as a non-sarcastic version of The Simpsons, and indeed, series creators Dan Povenmire and Jeff "Swampy" Marsh apparently met while working on The Simpsons. I'm obviously not alone in my enthusiasm since there's a Phineas and Ferb wiki page complete with 388 articles.
